1950s New York seems like a miserable place to live. Drive-by shootings. Exploding buildings. Crooked cops. Is anyone safe?
When it's set to Dean Martin's "Ain't That A Kick In The Head?", though, it seems a bit more palatable. Also, when it's a videogame called Mafia II, and I don't have to get anywhere near a bunch of trigger happy wiseguys, of course. This latest trailer is actually pretty slick, and does the best job of selling me on the sequel yet, with hot action and slick-looking visuals. And dames, too.
A demo for Mafia II is out next week, August 10. Should give us all plenty of time to decide whether or not we want to buy the game, which hits shelves on August 24.
